    Mantras don't work anymore

    Namaste, what is your opinion on this video

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wDtkbeQWbVQ

    He mentions mantra doesn't work in 95% of cases anymore.
    He also mentions in Kal Yuga most mantras do not work anymore.
    Effective mantras are only given under a realised guru and very rarely.
    Watch the vid for his concise answers.

    If you want some more context you can also watch this:

    Thanks.

    Namaste IcyCosmic,

    I haven't watched the video yet, admittedly, but what does a mantra do when it "works," and what effect would have to be absent for it to not work? I regularly chant mantras, and most of the time they are calming and uplifting to me. That works for me.

    I see what you mean. He did mention that mantras don't even calm most people down these days. I think he was also gearing at the fact that people expect wealth when praying to Laxmi, or removal of obstacles when praying to Ganesha, or strength when praying to Hanuman, & so on
